As part of this outreach effort, TEA has developed new electronic forms to help stakeholders submit public comments on proposed rules. A form for commenting on proposed commissioner of education and SBOE rules and a separate form for commenting on proposed SBEC rules are available on the web pages listed above.
TEA has also provided a Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ) page to answer questions you may have on the public comment process for proposed rulemaking. If you have any additional questions regarding the public comment process, you may contact the TEA Rulemaking Unit at (512) 475-1497 or by email at firstname.lastname@example.org.

Garrett Elementary is so excited to have the Accelerated Reading (AR) program this year. It's all about practice. AR encourages substantial differentiated reading practice to create strong readers. Based on each student's independent reading level, AR helps teachers set personalized goals for each student, and guide students to books difficult enough to keep them challenged, but not so difficult to cause frustration.
In addition, students earn rewards and acknowledgements for the points they earn by reading each book. Please stop by the Garrett Elementary Lbrary this summer to check it out.
